The Issuer’s Series A Stock, is a class of preferred stock that provides the holder(s), as a class, with the right to two (2) votes for each share of Common Stock issued and outstanding, and furthermore requires class voting such that the holders of a majority of the shares of Series A Stock must approve, as a class, any matter requiring stockholder approval. The establishment and issuance of the Series A Stock vests the Reporting Person with total authority over any matters requiring stockholder approval.

 

As a result of the Exchange Transaction, the business of Petrogres is now the principal business of the Issuer.

The Reporting Person participated in Exchange Transaction and acquired the shares of Issuer’s Common and Series A Stock (collectively, the “ Shares ”) for investment purposes. Consistent with such purposes, the Reporting Person has had, and may have in the future, discussions with management and the Board of Directors of the Issuer regarding the Issuer’s operations, prospects, business and financial strategies and other matters as the Reporting Persons deem relevant to his investment in the Shares and any other securities of the Issuer.

 

On May 12, 2017 the Issuer issued an 8% Convertible Promissory Note (the “ Convertible Note ”) in the original principal amount of $134,600 to the Reporting Person. Under the terms of the Convertible Note, all principal and accrued interest under the Convertible Note were convertible into Shares of Common Stock of the Issuer at a conversion price of $0.001 per share. On December 21, 2017 the Reporting Person exercised his rights to convert the Convertible Note into 139,880,000 shares of the Common Stock of the Issuer.
